This is a video clip of the live audio and video improvisation of LifeLoop and Keyframed at the opening of the arts festival Art=Adding, in Szczecin, Poland. This is the second collaborative event between Salon Bruit and Terminal08 of Poland.
LifeLoop In KnifeMode
The noise of knives, soothing in an uncomfortable way, introduce the setting to an illusive form of seduction. That of the danger of the instrument. But contact mikes, along with various small instruments, (table harp, whistle..) and tapes of found sound, turn that danger into something not quite poetic, not quite harmonic, but nevertheless seductive.
In this set Keyframed is working with a video system that uses live webcam feeds and a self made software.
This system takes the music setup as image source, using live editing, sampling, compositing and effects. This "machine" was proposed as an option to all the performers of the festival.
